Engagements since 1945 our Armed Forces didn’t stop active service after WW2, since then they’ve been involved in many conflicts, some of them a majority of the British Public have no knowledge of, this page will hopefully help to expand that knowledge and with it understanding.
This knowledge is important, because people that live amongst us have been and are still dealing with the issues arising from these engagements, we should all remember that when military engagements finish the experiences don’t go away, they are there for the lifetime of many families – someone you know will be a member of one.
We are grateful to the Imperial War Museum for supplying the information on the map below.
